  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning blend
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup

Put the cooked and cooled PAPA VINCE Busiate Pasta, celery, carrots, radish, peppers, olives and beans into a large bowl and gently stir with a large spoon to combine.

To make the dressing, put the vegan mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Italian seasoning and maple syrup in a small bowl and briskly whisk until smooth. Pour the dressing over the salad and gently stir to thoroughly coat. Season with PAPA VINCE sea salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, or until thoroughly chilled. Serve in a large bowl (family style) or on individual serving plates spooned over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and garnished with radish slices, more pepper slices and more PAPA VINCE sea salt, if desired.
